 80th anniversary liveried buses.... April-June 2013
     
The company celebrated its 80th anniversary on 13th April 2013 and to mark the occasion it held a special event on the top floor of its Shatin Depot.
A page detailing this event can be found here.

Three Wrights Eclipse Gemini 2 buses appeared at the event carrying differing 80th anniverary liveries and thanks to Grant Ng Kwok Kuen these are shown below. Models of each are, I am informed, highly likely.
This was confirmed when on 11th September 2013 when a model of AVBWU54 was announced (DW10514).

On 19th May 2013 AVBWU253 was noted with modifications to the livery carried on 13th April - a shame really as I really liked the original!
